Dallas residential internet coverage
Dallas, Fort Worth, and many of the area’s suburbs are covered by AT&T, Optimum, and Spectrum. But you may find you have a few more internet providers to choose from depending on which neighborhood or suburb you live in.
(Arlington Heights, Crestwood, Linwood, Monticello, Ridgmar, and Westover Hills)
Along with AT&T and Spectrum, certain neighborhoods in Fort Worth can get their fill of all things internet with Windstream.
(North Dallas and Northwest Dallas)
If you call North or Northwest Dallas home, you’ve got a choice between Windstream, AT&T, and Spectrum.
Dallas–Fort Worth Suburbs
(Allen, Denton, Frisco, Garland, Irving, Plano, and Richardson)
AT&T, Spectrum, and Frontier cover this region. However, Frontier doesn’t extend its service to downtown Dallas or Fort Worth.
Areas East of Dallas
AT&T, Frontier, and Optimum are available in Rockwall and Terrell.
AT&T is typically the lowest-priced option in this area. If you opt for its DSL plan, you can get speeds up to 100 Mbps, but we’d recommend fiber if you can get it—a speed of 300 Mbps will be perfect for a mid-sized household. Frontier gives you a two-year price guarantee, so if you plan on calling the great state of Texas home for a while, there’s no need to worry about price hikes.
